Suspect arrested in attempted abduction

Posted: Updated:
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

Deputies have arrested a man in connection with an attempted abduction in Brandon.

Investigators say Thursday morning, two women were out jogging in the area of Nature's Way and Elton Place, when Frank Zuniga, 27, jumped out and grabbed one woman's arm.

The victim screamed, and Zuniga, who was described as possible mentally challenged, let go of her arm and ran away.  Deputies say he got into a white pickup truck and drove away. 

Zuniga is possibly a suspect in a second incident that occurred on May 11, where a female was also jogging on Nature's Way and he allegedly grabbed her buttocks over her shorts.
